A Beacon of Hope in Yemen

Just ten miles away from Yemen’s capital city, Dar al-Hajar is a manmade wonder that sits atop a mountain of rocks. Created by Imam Yahya in the 1930s, the palace was the summer home and royal residence for the then ruler of Yemen. The palace, which boasts traditional Yemeni architecture, is five stories high, has several balconies and its own water supply sourced from a deep well on the premises. In a country riddled with conflict and disaster, this palace has become a sanctuary for local residents and a beacon of hope for peace in the region.
